important. time is too tight. not to get to the point. quickly, clearly, concisely. we are all paying hefty bills in this country. we better be clear with whoever runs it and whatever party wants to stay in it. it's our money. our questions. answer them, damn it. if you don't, katie bar the door. good night. >> kimberly: hello, everyone. i'm kimberly guilfoyle with bob beckel, eric bolling, dana perino and greg gutfeld is back! it's 5:00 in new york city. we're in a new studio for this week. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> kimberly: we begin tonight with the n.f.l. murder-suicide and the unusual commentary that followed from nbc sport caster bob costas. on saturday morning, kansas city chiefs linebacker jovan belcher murdered the mother of his 3-month-old child.
girlfriend cassandra perkins at their home. he drove to the team's practice facility and turned the gun on nims front of his coach and general manager. no one knows what set him off. but costas thinks he knows the reason. here he is on sunday night football. >> you want actual perspective on this? a bit comes from jason whitlock who i don't agree but today said it so well we may as well just quote or paraphrase from the and of his article. our current gun culture, whitlock wrote, ensure more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy an more convenience store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodieed and dead. handguns do not bring safety. they exacerbate our flaws and bait us to embracing confrontation rather than
avoiding it. in the coming daying, jovan belcher's action and the possible connection to football will be analyzed. who knows, but here wrote whitlock, this is what i believe. if jovan belcher didn't possess a gun he and perkins would both be alive. >> kimberly: police say he got the gun legally so he wasn't breaking laws being in possession of the firearm at a time. there is fall-out about this because people felt it was inappropriate for him to make the commentary. but he has done it before. >> eric: he editorializes usually on sports. but i saw this tragedy happen. saturday morning. and i saw it. how long before someone, someone uses that pulpit to say it's head drama and something else like gun control? never expected costas to do sunday on sunday night football. big stage. "god bless america" was playing in the background.
we have a second amendment right in america to possess handguns. that gun or one of them was acquired legally. costas didn't even say he believes this. he said he agrees with whitlock's assessment of it. jason whitlock assessment of it. can you imagine if he was talking pro-life? the place would be uproar and shut it down. pull the plug on him. are you okay? >> bob: costas is right. the two people would be alive if it wasn't for that handgun in his hand. the culture of violence is out of control. if it was up to me, been a all handguns. burn them. if you want to project your house, keep a rifle.
you don't need handgun. the hands of someone unstable with a drinking problem. >> eric: this guy is 6'4". 320. he could have killed her with his bare hands. it wasn't the handgun that killed her. jovan belcher killed her. >> bob: i see. right. >> kimberly: greg? >> greg: if it was a deadly flood it would be the same saying we need to been a water. he is a hypocritical buffoon. he spends his life wondering in and out of the new york buildings flanked by people who are armed. he doesn't have to have a gun because he is protected by people with guns. he is a sanctimonious ghoul. when something comes up, he has to come up.
pay attention to me. this is about scoring points with other people in media. same with whitlock, who is a chucklehead. this guy in the knickss when he was talking about jeremy lin played off a stereotypical deficiency i'm not even going to get in to. who refers to the nra as kkk. he is a bigot. apologize for that. >> bob: what is a ghoul? >> greg: somebody uses tragedy to build himself up. he is a hypocrite. because he doesn't worry about being armed. people are armed for him. we live in a building right now, we work at a building right now, where everybody has a gun outside. we're lucky. the rest of the public doesn't. >> bob: eric has a gun in his back pocket. >> kimberly: not on set. >> eric: if belcher's wife or girlfriend had a gun maybe she would be alive now. >> kimberly: dana was it appropriate commentary? his message sparked a controversy. questioning people about his
role. >> dana: he can do whatever he wants with his airtime. if that is what he felt he needed to say at the time, it doesn't make sense. a fantasy line to say if i had a magic wand, i would get rid of the guns and we'd have world peace. it would be great. but it's a waste of time and energy. because we know it's not going to happen. the thing that would be more courageous would be to talk about whether the issues regarding mental health. what should an employer or a teammate do to say i'm worried about him. i think we should do something. we saw this last spring in colorado. 470 murders in chicago this year alone. where was costas on the n.f.l. and talk about that? >> greg: whenever you find gun control you find higher gun crime.
when you say they would be -- >> dana: when you say they would be alive if they didn't have a gun, could you say that to the guy by the nanny wielding the knife and tried to kill herself? the same problem. it's a mental health problem and violence problem. it's not the fault of the knife or the gun. >> bob: talk about the violence for a second. clearly, here on -- >> greg: don't worry, i am not going to shoot you. >> bob: you are. >> kimberly: verbally. >> bob: the average life expectancy of n.f.l. player is 53 and 59. average age of white male is 79. 75 to 79. there is something about the professional football that costs people terribly. part will get to head injuries and concussion. >> greg: ban football. >> eric: you are on to something. there is a connection between hard-hitting sports and violent impact in sports and
people's life expectancy but you can't make a leap to therefore someone is suspectable or likely to kill someone. >> kimberly: you can't prohibit their right to carry or bear arms. that is a constitutional right. there is an issue of domestic violence. behavioral changes that he had problems with short-term memory. his girlfriend noted he was acting differently. problems with them. they couldn't remember what he had or what he said to get her to move back in. this is nothing whether he had a gun legally, or other means if he was going to do that. >> bob: i wish i could forget the last conversation i had with my ex-wife. it saw her this weekend. nice lady. >> eric: get back to question -- >> bob: let's get questions about guns. in countries where they do not
allow handguns there is very little murder. you can say it doesn't matter because that is not what the constitution guarantees it but it does not guarantee you a right to carry handguns. >> eric: if you know 15% of the population is armed, and more are bad guns do you not want to be armed? they are not going away. the bad guys have handguns. >> bob: justification is we can't do away with them because they're already here. >> eric: it's in the constitution. >> greg: what kills me is how the stories generate after an event. it begins with is it time to rethink gun laws? you know who is raising the question? media. they're going we are going to pun this in a couple of ways.
we need to rethink gun laws. they nerve thought about it. they never had a changed mind. >> dana: i am not responsible or to blame that jovan belcher murdered his wife and left a 3-month-old baby without parents. that is nobody's fault but his. >> bob: so you are in favor of the handgun? 'canes is cop out to not deal with the serious issue of mental health and violence. talk about guns two or three days after the event is not solving any problem. >> greg: these are people who live under a bridge until a tragedies out and then they go under there. >> eric: make another point. this is n.f.l. sunday. it's halftime. , "god bless america" is in the background, do i want him giving me a dissertation on the second amendment? >> bob: no. it's courageous. >> kimberly: how?
>> bob: he knows he will take heat for it. people like you will say it's not right, the second amendment -- it was written 300 years ago. >> dana: nice imitation of me. well done. >> greg: bob costas is a doe-eyed sports version of oprah and holds hands with his wife watching the lifetime channel. >> kimberly: is that so bad? what is wrong with the lifetime channel? >> greg: i love the lifetime channel but i don't love bob costas. >> kimberly: keep in mind you can't strip everyone else of the constitutional rights. >> bob: yo, man, bob. go for it. glades' why they do it to get accolades from others in the media. princess kate has been hospitalized in u.k. after she and prince william got exciting news. we have tell you about that next on "the five." ♪ ♪ why is it that the most impressive technology often comes with a set of equally impressive instructions ?

'canes is smart of the republicans. last week, geithner to the treasury secretary and laughed at. across the board, left and right commentators said i think president obama is overplaying the hand here.
they have a plan to get him what he campaigned on and said he wanted. they called it smart. we had the simpson bowl plan. deficit reduction plan how to get it back on track. they are proposing the plan that is a democrat version of the -- democrat counterpart to simpson. very smart. this offer was serious. the white house even though they put out a statement saying blah, blah, not good enough. call it a republican letter -- >> eric: this is the republican letter does not meet the test of balance. said our way or the highway from the white house. >> bob: reform ideas are
interesting and should be on the table. the rest is bull. they don't cut anything out of defense. number one. number two, talk about the tax reform that will get to rich. or broaden the base of the tax base. including more people paying taxes. this is a joke on top of joke, andly give you this. entitle reform are good ideas. calling the -- >> dana: i thought bush tax cuts only help the rich. i defended that for eight years. >> eric: get greg in here. bob calls this a joke of a joke. republicans suggest $600 billion in more taxes. >> yeah. >> dana: $800 billion. >> eric: sorry. $800 billion. the white house plan is no spending cuts. >> greg: obama calls this balanced approach and this is as balanced as rosanee drunk in an earthquake. people say why do you defend
these people? i'm not. you don't compromise on that. that is a stage eating steak or chicken or prairie chicken which we'll talk about later. obama only has a desire to raise taxes on the rich. all you know he wants to do it. run government for eight days and the taxes. the only reason why he is doing that is emotional gratification to feed the left, people he tries to appease. >> kimberly: it's appeas appeasement. >> bob: mostly wealthy people fun the wars in afghanistan. >> greg: i love that.

war. >> kimberly: look at the voice he uses! >> eric: if we go over the fiscal cliff, people getting hurt the most, paid the most are the wealthy. >> kimberly: look, we talk about the jobs -- look, you want class warfare. >> greg: why is it good to punish people -- >> bob: break after break after break for republicans from 1986 on. time to pony up. >> greg: why? they pay most of the taxes. >> bob: so what? you don't care they contribute. you want them punished. >> greg: you're obama's soul. >> bob: they don't pay percentage of taxes on the money they earn versus what -- >> greg: 40%. reduce the government for eight days. that is preposterous. >> eric: is earning money a bad thing? >> dana: not if you ask for
campaign contributions. practical point, gite on the sunday show said all the democrats support this. that is not true. the key democrats, landrieu, begich and north carolina -- i can't remember her name -- they are on all on record saying i don't think i'm for this. he has even a harder time convincing those on the democratic side to go with his plan. >> greg: one day explain why are you punishing the rich when you know it won't benefit anything? that is a punitive idea and pay more than anyone in country. >> eric: we have to go. why are american jobs on the chopping block because of animals like to prairie chicken? dana explains how environmentalists are running wild. that's next on "the five."
